Abstract

Aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) is an osteolytic benign tumour, which is usually situated in the metaphysis of
long bones and mostly encountered in patients younger than 20 years old. Common treatment modalities
include arterial embolization, curettage, intralesional injections and en-bloc resection with instrumentation.
We present a case of an eighteen-year old male with an ABC involving lesser trochanter of left femur with
impending pathological proximal femur fracture. We discuss treatment modalities and clinical outcome in
our case.

Keywords: Aneurysmal bone cyst, Expansile lytic cyst, Lesser trochanter tumour, Proximal femur.
